SDF-1 turns on autophagy that helps cells stay in place and focused on making bone
They envision a collagen matrix, almost like a raft, that delivers SDF-1 and stem cells or SDF-1 alone where needed, enabling targeted bone regrowth in the case of a bad fracture, for example. It was already known that stem cells secrete SDF-1 and that the ...
Stem cells: What they are and what they do
In fact, researchers have already shown that adult bone marrow cells guided to become heart-like cells can repair heart tissue in mice, and much more research is ongoing. Have stem cells already been used to treat diseases? Yes, stem cell transplants ...
T-Rex Cells Found In Bone Confirmed To Be Actual Cells, Not Contamination, May Be Possible To Extract DNA
Preserved soft tissue discovered inside of a T-Rex ... to be collagen. After determining that it was collagen, the researchers next step was to find out “if the star-shaped cellular structures within the fibrous matrix were osteocytes, or bone cells.”
Bone marrow fat tissue secretes hormone that helps body stay healthy

From connective tissue to bones
“The dream is to be able to manipulate connective tissue cells in the human body to develop into specific cell types, for example to create bone cells for broken bones”, says Gunnar Kratz.
